500ml Bottle. Its aroma is of sweet fruits and floral notes. It pours a golden amber with a fast fading white head. Its taste is a lot blander than you would expect given the aroma. It fact theres very little there except water and a dry bitter finish. Not a lot to write home about on this one - drinkable but lacking in flavour and character.

Pours golden yellow with lasting thin white head. Aroma is freshly cut grass and slightly floral with slight caramel malt , smells nice. Taste is medium bitter and slightly sweet. Palate is thin and watery and leaves a rather dank and lasting bitterness. Not bad and drinkable but nothing special.

Bottle from Morrisons, not my choice. Definately not the worst supermarket bitter since it was actually drinkable.

Very caramel tasting and a lovely caramel aroma. Deep honey brown. Hardly there head but a lovely drink ability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber color, head quickly gone, left some lacing. There is a bit of flowery hops in aroma but covered by a load of wet cardboard and vegetables. Taste is better some lemon and malt, almost no bitterness.

Clear amber beer, with a white, foamy head. Oily and fizzy. Rather hoppy: some orange, lemon, and spice. Some alcohol notes, and a vague maltiness: biscuit and honey. A dry, earthy finish. Drinkable, but not blended to my liking: a bit too sickly.

Itís bog standard. It does what is says on the tin, but it hasnít got its heart in it. It would rather be off watching a DVD boxset than resting in my mouth.

Hmm, was hoping for more from this, lacks aroma, looks ok tho! Palate has citrus hops as expected, but I find it a tad unbalanced. One of those that fall into the "Iíve had worse....." category.
